About B.Tech in IEOR

The B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR) at IIT Bombay follows the basic curriculum pattern of all other B.Tech programs in the institute and will allow for options such as honors, minor, conversion to Master's and exit degrees, in addition to the basic degree.  The curriculum includes a mix of complusory courses, labs, departmental electives and open electives, providing maximum flexibilty to the students.  Students can do one or two-stage project (B.Tech project) and other open-ended courses to explore their individual interests.

The graduates of IEOR from IIT Bombay will have a basic, rigorous, scientific engineering education that allows them to take on roles in industry, research, government, and other sectors in a variety of applied disciplines including data analytics, manufacturing, finance, retailing and supply chains, health care, various service sectors.  In addition, the program leads to many interdisciplinary opportunities in mathematical sciences, economics, general management, and technology development.

The first batch will be admitted in June/July 2024.


The course will have a mix of classroom instruction, practical work, exposure to industry and other sectors, project work, and independent work by students.  Instruction will be supported by teaching assistants and other resource persons.  Evaluation will be through regular exams, assignments, project work presentations, and group work.
